A man screams in pain as emergency crews extract him following a single-car crash at the Stickney Avenue and 17th Street North Saturday afternoon. Police on scene say there was four occupants in the car and two have been placed under arrest. The vehicle took out a power line and power is out in the area, including traffic lights at the intersection of 18th Street North and Parker Boulevard.

Two arrests were made after a serious car crash in which alcohol is believed to be a factor.

The driver of a Chevrolet Malibu was believed to be travelling eastbound on Stickney Avenue Saturday before losing control, hitting a hydro pole near the corner of 17th Street North at around 2:40 p.m.

Three females passengers ran from the scene, leaving the fourth passenger, a 24-year-old man, trapped behind the wheel.

The three females were found in the area. One was taken to hospital with minor injuries and later released. The second woman, 31, was found drunk and arrested in relation to an outstanding warrant and taken to the Brandon Correctional Centre. The third woman, 20, was also intoxicated when she was found causing a disturbance at the crash scene and was also hauled off to jail.

While the man yelled in pain, emergency crews cut open the car to get him out and the man suffered significant injuries, but is in stable condition. A hydro pole was knocked down across the roadway and electrical wires were on the ground under and around the vehicle. Power was knocked out in the area at the time.

An onlooker who said he lives nearby said he heard the crash and has "never heard anything like it," as many people stood around the scene watching crews ply open the car.

The matter is currently under investigation.
